"I felt the stability of a couple of older players would help the team," Nicklaus said. "Fred is one of the most enthusiastic guys on the tour. He said, 'I'd row a boat to South Africa to get there.' I selected Jay because he's had a wonderful year, and he's had a lot of International experience."
Haas is 49, and Funk, the former golf coach at the University of Maryland, is 47. They join Tiger Woods, Davis Love III, Jim Furyk, David Toms, Kenny Perry, Phil Mickelson, Justin Leonard, Chris DiMarco, Jerry Kelly, and Charles Howell.
The event will be held at the Gary Player-designed Links Course in George, South Africa, Nov. 20-23.
